Creases and folds may cause the adhesive to stick poorly to the skin

Leakage as a result of poor contact between adhesive and the skin is typically caused by creases and folds or other irregularities in the area around the stoma that makes it difficult to obtain a proper seal. See below for recommendations.

Brava® Protective Seal Brava® Protective Seal

Brava® Protective Seal creates a seal between the stoma and the baseplate and is designed to protect against leakage and protect the skin. The seal is also easy to shape, apply and remove. Now there are new wide sizes available for a greater coverage of more challenging peristomal skin areas.

Read more about the new sizes in the Product Description section.

The Brava Protective Seal is designed to protect against leakage and protect the skin. It is based on a polymer formulation that provides dual protection. It is easy to shape so it fits snugly around the stoma and can be applied over skin with dips, creases and folds. Removing the protective seal is quick and easy, leaving minimal residue behind.

 

Regular Seals

For a better fit and improved protection against leakage for skin with dips, creases and folds.

 

 

Wide Seals

A greater surface area, for a better fit over skin with more challenges such as deeper creases and folds.

IMPORTANT! If you have any concerns – such as skin problems or how to use new products – you should always consult your stoma care nurse.
